Your Horoscope: Week of Jan. 30-Feb. 5, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Jan. 30-Feb. 5, 2013
This Week: Utilize this time frame to take a personal inventory on your long-term goals. This is also a time when we can restructure our personal relationships, clearing up any miscommunications that have arrived over the past few months. Fresh starts and new beginnings are on the forefront. Hidden influences and those who have attempted to harm others are revealed. Those who have meddled in others’ affairs will be put in the hot seat now. The truth is never too far behind, regardless of how crafty one may feel they were at the time.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Your intuition is working overtime. Be still and listen to your gut. This energy will provide you with new career opportunities as well as heighten your love life. When February arrives, it arrives with a bang. All of your hopes, dreams and ambitions begin to fall into place.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may feel as though you are grieving the loss of someone near and dear to you. You may be struggling with keeping your emotions in check. It’s OK to feel something this deep. You will have the resolution you need by week’s end, as well as a sense of peace.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — If you feel like you’re the absentminded professor this week, it’s perfectly fine, and this scattered behavior will not last long. By week’s end, you will begin to feel like yourself again. Try not to worry about the health or welfare of a female friend. The outcome is much better than it initially appears.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You will be put in a position of authority at this time. You will handle this with grace and ease. Someone needs you to step up to the plate and protect him or her. You have the emotional tools to do just that. Choose your words carefully. Count to 10 before you speak.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Romance may have had you in the dumps, but now the tables are turning for the better. All of the unforeseen events are out in the open, and you have the tools to battle these difficulties one by one. Before week’s end, a heart-to-heart talk clears the air and sets your mind at ease.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You’re in a position to have the upper hand at this time. Take these steps to protect those you love, and allow yourself the time and space you need to take care of you as well. You have the tools to accomplish great things in life. Your intuition is dead-on accurate now. Use this to improve the quality of your life.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romance becomes a priority this week. You have been so overwhelmed with a business element that there has not been much time for a little romantic rest and relaxation. Even if it’s just a night out on the town, the efforts you take will be received in the best possible light, allowing you to move forward now. Make return phone calls and keep up with business ventures midweek.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Opportunities arrive to improve the quality of your life, especially in the career sector. You have underestimated your abilities, and your emotional state has caused you to go into a shell. Crack it open and look around. Be open and receptive to change, even if it makes you a bit uneasy at first. Blessings are on the way shortly.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You’re in the limelight during this time frame, and you may not feel like being there. Heavy emotional conflict has taken a toll on your energy. The best way to recharge your sensitive state is to push through it. Once you become neck-deep in a functioning project, you will forget about all of the conflicts of those around you. Legal matters and financial aspects are highly charged in your favor. Utilize this energy to your advantage.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Watch that you do not get into a tangle with a loved one or friend this week. Pressures are mounting, and you may not have the tools to deal with these emotions properly. Surround yourself with tried and true individuals who have your back at all costs. Next week, you will see the money pouring in from all directions.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A pending fear of loss could bring out the worst in your significant other or a family member. Keep the peace. You are clever enough to heed the warning signs and steer someone off into a new direction. Once this sets into motion, there is no going back. Do not allow another to fuel the fire.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — There are no coincidences. This is a time when you are running into everyone from your past. These chance meetings hold the key to future success. You will be expanding your career sector in ways you never thought you could imagine. By summer, all of your hard work and efforts will come to fruition. The past holds the key to your future.
